Route 19 is a long highway in Missouri. Its northern terminus is at U.S. Route 61 in New London; its southern terminus is at U.S. Route 63 on the north side of Thayer. Route 19 is one of Missouri's original 1922 highways, though it initially had a northern terminus at Route 14 (now Interstate 44) in Cuba and was later extended north.

Route 19 crosses the Missouri River at Hermann, a town famous in Missouri for its wineries, and crosses Historic U.S. Route 66 at Cuba. South of Cuba, it is a state scenic highway and passes by Indian Trail State Park northeast of Salem, crosses through the Ozark National Scenic Riverways twice, and passes through a part of the Mark Twain National Forest.

History

The part from Drake north to US 54 east of Mexico was Route 45 from 1922 until about 1930.
